No, it's completely free to launch a Tzilla fundraiser!
Tzilla is the ONLY t-shirt fundraising platform that allows your supporters to make their own customized apparel.
Whether you're part of a school sports team looking to raise money for the upcoming season or a teacher raising money for classroom school supplies, launching a Tzilla fundraiser is quick, easy, and completely free. All you have to do to get started is build your page and add your team.
Your team members will use our automated email tool to invite family and friends who have two ways to support: buy customizable apparel or make a straight donation.
Yes. The process of creating a fundraiser on Tzilla only takes a few minutes, but you can save your draft and pick up right where you left off when you’re ready to finalize it.
Absolutely not! Once your supporter places their order, it goes directly into our print queue to ensure that they receive it as soon as possible (as opposed to most T-shirt fundraising, where shirts are printed and shipped at the end of the campaign).
Your supporters will receive their orders within 10 days of placing the order.
You can hit your goal in 2 - 3 weeks if you follow all the steps on our platform and recommendations on the platform.
When one of your supporters backs your fundraiser by purchasing apparel, there’s a default price set based on what works as a solid average. However, you can control the pricing by clicking ‘edit pricing’ on your fundraiser dashboard. Here are some terms that will help you manage pricing:
Base Price: The base price of a product covers the cost of materials and printing. We have base prices set for each of our body styles.
Selling Price: The selling price is what you charge for each item before sales tax (it includes the base price).
Profit Margin: Your profit margin is what you make from each shirt. Calculate the profit margin by subtracting the base price from your selling price. For example, if the base price is $12 and you set the profit margin at $10, the cost of the t-shirt will be $22.
Within 10 business days after the fundraiser ends.
You can add as many team members to your fundraising squad as you want!
Yes, and we encourage you to promote your fundraiser via social media, as it’s one of the best ways to reach potential supporters!

We use top of the line Direct to Garment printers. All of our printing is proudly done in the United States. All of our garments are printed with eco-friendly, biodegradable inks.
The printing method involves the pre-pressing of the garment to ensure the high definition print. The impression will disappear after the first wash.
Please refer to the unique care instructions on each product’s neck label.

Our SuperCustomize Engine puts your supporters in the art director’s chair to create personalized apparel. The easy-to-use tech allows your backers to customize tees by changing text and colors, as well as adding patterns, icons, and more.
We’re currently working on a feature that allows you to upload your own art to give you more options on customizing your apparel. Stay tuned!
We put a character count limit to make sure the design looks balanced or eye-catching.
At the moment, you can only place a design on the front of the apparel.
After you place an order, it goes straight to our print queue. You won’t have to wait until the end of the campaign to get your apparel unless you order items toward the end of the fundraiser timeline.
We provide standard shipping throughout the contiguous 48 states in the USA. Expect your order to be delivered within 10 business days after you place it.
